  1. Peel, slice, wash all vegetables in preparation for roasting.
  2. Get out a medium to large roasting pan and place all vegetables inside – distributing evenly across pan.
  3. Spray with adequate coconut oil and then sprinkle with salt and pepper to your desire.
  4. Roast for 30-45 minutes, checking from 30 minutes onwards to see if the vegetables are done to your liking.
  5. Best eaten fresh – make sure you don’t burn your tongue!

NB: Can also be stored for a day outside with a cloth/cling wrap covering the pan OR for up to 3 days with refrigeration.
